small bowl with platinum and gold, 2019
4 x 5 x 5 in
3 bowls: one large and two small. Beginning with a ball of clay, Salusti pinches it into each vessel's shape and textures them with stone fragments. After multiple firings it is finally lustered, in this case, with a mix of 22K gold and platinum. Its volcanic-like outer wall seems almost protective of its precious center. The vessel attracts and contains ambient light, giving it a spiritual presence.
